The Stonewall Inn was the site of the summer of ’69 Stonewall riots, the infamous gay-rights demonstrations against a “Public Morals” police raid. Now nestled between a pet store and a head shop, it’s been redone a fair bit since gay activists barricaded the police inside using an uprooted parking meter. The legend, however, lives on, with historic photos from the riots hanging amid the flat-screens that sometimes show soft-core porn. The downstairs combines new and old as well, with classic wood paneling offsetting an entirely mirrored wall, and red-lit side room with cozy seating for more, uh, intimate encounters. The upstairs offers a bar mitzvah vibe, complete with multicolored flashing lights, a disco ball, velour curtains, leopard-print seating and, of course, a stage—though there’s probably more nudity than your average Jewish coming-of-age ritual. Monday-night bingo starting at 9 P.M. is called by a bevy of decked-out drag queens.
